Christmas decorations remind me of home and past and I love revisiting those old friends. But Easter and spring just makes me smile! Bunnies and chicks, eggs and nests. It's spring!
This year I started with my hutch. Laura from Decor to Adore described hers as a "cabinet of curiosities" and I like that idea. Mine is, as well, changed up for the season.
In fact, I'd like to keep the doors open all season -- but I'd probably bump my head on the corner too many times!
It's a time to revisit tiny bunnies and some of my china collecting favorites, like this Fiesta jug. (The plate behind it was a gift from a friend who found it in Normandy and I love the colors!).
The little pink peat pot is one of several that were part of a peat-pot-making-spree several years ago.
The other side of the top shelf finds two bunnies in front of a favorite photo by Cheryl Rice, who is also one of our Cork Poppers.
Years ago when Cheryl was doing art fairs, I got this one and it's moved from room to room! Perfect for spring. (Aren't those shiny eggs cute? Target bargain section, $3 for two. They're place card holders!)
Down below you'll find my favorite Hall Crocus pattern jug. Those dishes always make a spring appearance, too. (And you'll see -- even in the kitchen!)
And of course, a little crystal to pick up the light. I'm very fond of these metal bunnies.
Atop the china cabinet you will find a few things near and dear to my heart!
This sweet wooden bunny has such personality, I can't resist him. I've had that egg in front of him for longer than I can remember. It's a favorite! The photo behind him is by my friend Jane Rosemont. Sort of perfect for Easter, don't you think?
The hydrangeas and baskets came from Southern Exposure. I love the lift that the bright green gives!
And of course you will note the sweet little baby-in-a-nest next to it. That's our boy!
Across the room on another cabinet is the wreath I did at Southern Exposure several years ago. It remains one of my favorites! (Southern Exposure workshops start again next month and I can't wait!)
I added in a few touches, a sweet velvet bird, among others. Couldn't resist.
In the corner, a little village.
This egg tree (and the one you'll see in another post) are golden oldies.
And I just love these!
The Pendelfin bunnies (along with Hummels) were my first collections, started as an Easter gift from my mom. I don't see them often now and it's fun to make friends with them again!
And of course, you have to have something on the coffee table. (Well, OK, usually there is a lot on the coffee table and little falls into the category of home decor!)
I found this small aqua box at Target in the almost-a-dollar section. ($3) The bunny was an "old friend" and I added the daffodils, eggs, moss and these cute Target lights (same spot, $3 per strand.) They had them in pink and natural too, and I need to go back for more!
Another table holds a large basket of eggs.
My second "cabinet of curiosities) didn't get much of a change-up inside.
But it was fun to add a floral swag, bunnies and an Easter banner at the top!
There is even a sprig of lily of the valley for the Greeting Angel.
And some cheerful flowers and fairy lights to brighten it all up!
Then, of course, there is the family room... but we'll save that for later!
